Abstract

In this Letter we give theoretical explanations for the recent observations of the excitation of Raman-shifting pulse pairs in solid-core photonic crystal fibers. The formation of these pairs is surprisingly common in the deep anomalous dispersion regime of a large variety of highly nonlinear optical fibers, away from zero group-velocity dispersion points. We have developed two different theoretical models, which agree very well in their conclusions. A qualitative and a quantitative explanation of pair formation is provided, and the existence of multipeak states is predicted.
